Film Making

Our Filmmaking workshops can be based around any theme or curriculum subject.  We have a few tried and tested projects which always go down well with both children and staff.  Our ‘off the shelf’ workshops can be viewed below but if you can’t see anything you fancy we’ll be happy to propose a bespoke project based on your requirements.

All of our workshops cater for groups of 15 students at a time (Half a class).  A full class can be split over one or two+ days depending on the workshop.

Description: Using video examples, worksheets and group discussion the pupils learn about unique selling points and target audiences before filming their adverts.

The completed adverts are exported to DVD for the school to use.
